REVIEW: HEREN - Here & Now (Remixes) out on WAO Music!

Garnering over two million streams worldwide, HEREN’s latest single ‘Here & Now’ has shown impressive pace for the relative newcomer from Barcelona. With support steadily growing momentum across Europe and South America, the single is now accompanied by a trio of new remixes that serve up new musical directions for the popular club hit. 

The original, released back in September 2016, features an instantly catchy vocal that fuses well with a pacy, dance-pop vibe layered over a rhythmical bass line. Now HEREN releases the official remix package for ‘Here & Now’, and what’s in store for fans is a sumptuous offering of musical delights! Armada Deep regular Embody takes lead on the remix package providing a tropical-flavored twist with some splicing to the original’s likeable melodic tone, adding in additional percussive grooves to give the track a flared stride of energy. German-based Ramón Esteve also steps up with a UK-bass-led remix, adding a new atmospheric twist to the single. HEREN also puts in a remix appearance this time opting for a gutsier take. Expect bass heavy drops, some playful EQ’ing and audio flicks for an entirely new effect! 

So far the single has been climbing radio playlists and iTunes charts in France, Sweden, Norway, Ecuador and Chile, as well as becoming one of the 50 most viral tracks in Argentina, Spain, Chile and México, proving the track has a lot more momentum ahead of it.

Make sure to grab ‘Here & Now’ via WAO Music!

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]HEREN presents the top remix package of his worldwide anthem Here & Now with the incredible vocals and singalong lyrics. Ramon Esteve provides a very beautiful remix that is stuffed with nice warm synths, playful piano chords, old school basslines, rave style organ riffs and feel good sunkissed atmosphere that bring Ibiza on your mind straight away. Embody remix applies tribalish chunky grooves, funky basslines, trap house effects and xylophone melodies to bring that tropical house atmosphere and make everybody dance the Caribbean way. Irresistible rhythm and infectious groove for the ultimate party atmosphere. Lastly HEREN treats us first class with his VIP style remix that keeps the breakdown melodic and smooth while the drop is fat and in your face with swirling synths and maddening atmosphere to wake up your senses the Spanish way. #PureGold Love It  [/content]
